Welcome back to Gate 15’s Risk Roundtable podcast and our first recording of 2021 now available on Anchor, Apple, Spotify, as well as other locations accessible from the Anchor link. The Risk Roundtable gang kicks off 2021 with two events that ended 2020 – the Christmas Day bombing in Nashville and the Solar Winds cyber event. Dave, Jen, and Andy discuss both incidents along with related issues and look at the challenges and responses in each instance as well as what may come from them as we move forward in 2021 (though we assess no significant threat from lizard people [Shoutout to “V”!]). Then in the Roundtable Roulette, Dave brings up how to deal with dis/misinformation while Jen reminds everyone that new year doesn’t mean that we can forget about our stable of cyber threats, most notably ransomware, an enduring threat which continued to evolve throughout 2020. Finally, with it being a new year, the gang looked at personal and professional goals such as Dave’s desire to read more, Jen completing her “she-shed,” and Andy’s desire to be more like Dave…
During this Risk Roundtable discussion, Andy referenced this 02 Jan New York Times article, As Understanding of Russian Hacking Grows, So Does Alarm.
The Risk Roundtable podcast is a recurring monthly discussion among our team and occasional guests as we explore the all-hazards threats and risks impacting the United States and internationally. As we seek to help apply a threat-informed, risk-based approach to analysis, preparedness and operations, we hope these podcasts are informative and maybe even a little entertaining.
